Southern Conference on British Studies

2022 Meeting

November 11-12, 2022: Baltimore, MD

Call for Papers

Deadline for submission: May 15, 2022

The Southern Conference on British Studies solicits proposals for its 2022 meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. The SCBS will meet in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association.

The SCBS construes British Studies widely and invites participation by scholars in all areas of British history and culture, including the Empire or Commonwealth and the British Isles. We welcome both individual and panel submissions on any topic in British Studies, but especially those related to this year’s theme of Communication and Contact, which includes works that explore engagement across political, social, racial, religious or spatial divides, as well as examinations of how such connections are both created and challenged.

We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Katie Hindmarch-Watson, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University, will deliver the plenary.

Individual proposals should be no more than 250 words in length and include a short biographical statement. Panel proposals should be limited to 750 words and include a rationale for the panel as well as a brief description of each paper and participant. Proposals should be sent to Dr. Jill Bender at [email protected]

The SCBS Charles Perry Graduate Student Prize ($250) will be awarded to the best paper presented at the conference by a graduate student. Entries must be received by October 15, 2022.

Graduate students who present papers at SCBS meetings are eligible to apply for one of two $500 Research Travel Awards given annually by the SCBS. Graduate students are eligible in the two years following their presentation. See the SCBS website for more information: https://www.scobs.org/graduate-student-travel-award.

The Rights Task Force of the NACBS, the NACBS Graduate and Early Career Caucus, and the Southern Conference on British Studies (co-sponsor of the 2021 NACBS Conference) are joining together to sponsor a Zoom session to help early career scholars and individuals from underrepresented groups and fields create panels for the upcoming NACBS 2021 Conference. We hope to meet in Atlanta, Georgia, November 11-14, 2021. 

The Zoom Session will be held Friday, March 5, 12:00 to 1:30PM, Eastern Standard Time.

Individuals should come to the Zoom session prepared to recount a two-minute summary of the work they would like to present at the conference.

Senior scholars interested in helping junior scholars and those representing or researching underrepresented groups should also attend, and identify themselves as willing to provide the comment, serve as a chair, or provide an additional paper for a panel.

If you are unable to make the meeting but would like to participate, send a few brief sentences, identifying yourself, what you would like to present, or on what type of panels you would be willing to chair or comment. Email this to [email protected] and the statements will be compiled and shared with participates at the live event.

Register in advance for this meeting:

The North American Conference on British Studies/Southern Conference on British Studies has again arranged with The Scholar’s Choice to manage the combined book exhibit for our annual meeting taking place November 6-8 in Louisville, Kentucky. It will be possible for your recently-published books to be included in their display.  Please refer to the guidelines below:

“Any members interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming NACBS/SCBS meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible.  Please keep in mind that the publishers pay a fee to display with The Scholar’s Choice and may not have the marketing budget necessary to honor all requests, particularly for older titles. Reservations from the publishers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis so reserving early is highly recommended.  Please note that The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and ALL requests must come from them, not the author.  The person who handles reservations at The Scholar’s Choice is Debby Pitts. Your publisher may reach her at [email protected] or at 585-262-2048 x.108.”
